Salty Cookie

Most people think 'cookie' as a sweet treat. But the cookie recipe I will share is salty and it is served with afternoon tea in Mediterranean countries.


  • 3-4 cups of all purpose flour (you can also use 3 cups of wheat and 1 cup of white flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter 
  • 1/3 cup of sunflower/vegetable/ canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Sesame, black seeds


Take large bowl, add yogurt, oil, butter, vinegar, sugar and one egg. Separate the yolk and white of other egg and add just the white to the mixture. 

Knead the mixture while adding small amounts of flour slowly, add baking powder and salt as well. Knead it until it gets soft. 

Take a small piece from the dough and roll it in between your both hands and twist. 

Place them on a baking pan, leave a little distance between them as they will rise. Take the egg yolk that you have separated before and apply it on the cookies with the help of a brush. Sprinkle sesame and black seeds on them.I prefer to use both of them, but you can use either.

Bake about 35 minutes in 350-400 F preheated oven.
